point on a scale of 1000 point and the highest total since 2006. they cited lower airfares and better on-time performance, a decline in lost luggage for the increase in satisfaction. overall southwest airlines rated the highest for the discount and traditional airlines when it comes to passenger satisfaction. jetblue coming in second, alaska airlines, delta and america and following. the palo alto company accepting a $1000 deposit a plan and start installations next month and tesla showing off the solar roof tiles which cost about $30,000 for the average size house. take a look at that and most say you only need 40% of the roof covered.
tesla says there are two styles available and two additional available and six months. that gives you a different look for the house, and there's one that's a tuscan style, and they say there is a lifetime warranty for as long as the house is there. they are trying to make this a comparable to other roof tiles. when you factor in the energy savings with the solar tiles. they do look very pretty as opposed to those raised panels that some people have. it is 4:52 am. where is the best place to raise kids in california, we will tell you the bay area cities that made the top 10 places to settle down with your family.
pg&e learned a tragic lesson we can never forget. this gas pipeline ruptured in san bruno. the explosion and fire killed eight people. pg&e was convicted of six felony charges including five violations of the u.s. pipeline safety act and obstructing an ntsb investigation. pg&e was fined, placed under an outside monitor, given five years of probation, and required to perform 10,000 hours of community service. we are deeply sorry. we failed our customers in san bruno. while an apology alone will never be enough, actions can make pg&e safer. and that's why we've replaced hundreds of miles of gas pipeline, adopted new leak detection technology that is one-thousand times more sensitive, and built a state-of-the-art gas operations center. we can never forget what happened in san bruno.
